Hello.

You made it to the end! I did take more pictures than this, but there was a lot of blurry ones. Maybe I should start editing my photos too, cause I never do. Except for on Instagram, but that’s cause they’re already on the app, I don’t have to open another program.

Anyway, you may have noticed a YouTube link underneath this paragraph. I have said that I’m interested in trying to do videos as well as blogs…Well this is my first real effort. I started videoing on another drive instead of just taking pictures. I downloaded a free video editing program, looked around online for songs that I could freely download and use without royalty costs. Then I spent way longer than I thought I would cutting together footage and trying to match it to the music. I also kept in random bits of audio which I thought were funny. But anyway, feel free to have a watch and let me know what you think 🙂 All constructive criticism welcome.

The music is Good Times by Podington Bear. I found it here. Also, this video is less than 2 minutes, but took me around 2 hours to make. Yikes, I feel for all those YouTubers.

Anyway, I am keeping in the back of my mind, other ideas that might work for videos. It may be a while before I do a talking one, cause it still feels awkward. That’s still a future goal though, cause this was fun 🙂

Hello all, are you ready for another photo heavy post?

Previously, I posted Leisurely Drives, and Leisurely Walks.

I haven’t done one in a while, and I enjoy when I get the chance to show off the good side of Wellington. When the weather behaves, it allows me to take some beautiful photos of my little town.

Last Thursday, I had a stressful day at work. So I decided to walk to the library after work to pick up Me Before You, a book I had been looking forward to reading. Rory met me there, and then we decided to walk alongside the waterfront for a bit. The sun was starting to set, and it was a lovely walk. I got a lot of photos, the sky only had a few clouds, there were shades of orange from the sunset and the moon was bright. It turned my day around.

Hello! I got lots of great feedback from you guys about my post Leisurely Walks. I really loved going through all the photos I had taken while I was out on a walk. So this may start a series of sorts, where I write less, and let my photos do the talking.

Yesterday, we had some lovely weather here in Wellington for a change. It was nicer than it had been in weeks. Instead of walking around though, we had plans to go out and spend some time with Rory’s family which is not walking distance. It’s a 15 minutes drive out of town, and while we were driving, I took out my phone and started taking photos for no real reason, other than I wanted to.

Have a look!

Leisurely Walks

Hello all! I would like to complain about the weather. The weather has sucked here lately. We have been lucky enough to have one sunny day here or there, but as we head into more of autumn, and then winter (ugh), I’m sure we will see more grey and rain.

I thought it would be nice to upload photos of past summer days where Rory and I would walk around town. We’d walk around the waterfront, Courtenay Place, and just look around. I would constantly stop to take photos of whatever interested me. I’ve posted some of these photos before, but I have a lot sitting in my phone. So I thought I would pick out the best and show them to you guys, while I wait for the rain to go away.
